All this week (13-17 December) Classic FM are running a Christmas Appeal to raise money for music therapy projects for children. You can take part by bidding for some fantastic lots in the Appeal Auction
And if you listen in to Classic FM at 6.30pm on Thursday 16 December you can bid for tickets and drinks for Symphony Hall?s New Year?s Eve Gala matinee with the London Concert Orchestra – a sparkling way to see in the New Year. You can also bid online
This superb afternoon concert includes timeless classics, from Elgar?s Nimrod to Ravel?s Bolero as well as music by Tchaikovsky, Sousa and, of course, Strauss. Tenor John Hudson and baritone Richard Morrison join the orchestra for arias and duets, and you?ll also hear all your Proms favourites. The successful bidders can also relax at the Symphony Hall bar with a complimentary drink before heading off for their evening celebrations. New Year?s Eve Gala Matinee is at Symphony Hall Birmingham at 3pm on Friday 31 December.
The money raised from the auction will help the Classic FM Foundation to fund over 4,000 music therapy sessions for children living with illness, disability, trauma or isolation; transforming their lives through the power of music.
Town Hall & Symphony Hall and Classic FM have been partners since 2002 sharing a vision to create new audiences for classical music.
